Dear 13 year old self,
Hey girl – how goes it? I know you are really bumming over the fact that you still look weird with your contacts, but I promise people will get used to it. Glasses are for super dorks and you should know that the only way boys are going to notice you is if you get rid of them. Also, that hair of yours – stop trying to control the curls. Just let them be FREE! Your 27 year old self has rocking hair by the way – we wear it curly OR straight. Stop wearing it in pigtails or you’ll never get a boyfriend.
Speaking of boyfriends, I am so sorry that you still don’t have one. At your age, guys are too immature to realize how beautiful you really are. They are attracted to boobs, bangs, and sluttiness. If you look around you, the girls who are most popular are the ones who have B, B, and S (bangs, boobs, super slutiness). THIS IS NOT THE KEY to a boyfriend. The key to a boyfriend is having a great sense of humor, embracing your natural beauty, and confidence. Be patient my little Chunk. There is this guy out there, that you will meet on a cruise, who is going to be the guy of your dreams. I PROMISE (I am married to him now). The other guys you meet before and after him will NOT compare.
You’ll realize on your wedding day that the only guy you belong with is one who makes you laugh, gives you freedom to be yourself, and is your best friend. And guess what? You marry just that kind of guy.
Don’t let anyone pressure you into anything you don’t want to do. It is okay to be a prude. Save yourself. Your Prince Charming will be there in March 2003.
Your 28 year old self
